Asbestos roof tile is basically a contaminated roofing material. It consists of natural minerals that are fibrous in nature. Fibrous quality of Asbestos are useful in various building materials. For example: Pipe insulation, floor tile, and fireproofing. Shingles, tars, pitch and roof tiles were also set up with the help of asbestos.
These roof tiles are hazardous for health because of the particles made with the tile. This could be a cause respiratory health hazards. These health hazards occur when respirable fibers are in the air and then inhaled in your body. These materials are in two categories: Friable and non-friable. Usage of Non-Friable containing materials is not that harmful because they do not release dangerous fiber into the air. This class of materials does not release fibers unless you impact them mechanically.

At the first step, roofing materials must be mixed with non-friable materials (tar, pitch, asphalt). This mixing hardens the fibers, prevents their release, and avoids inhalation. The second step includes the safe methods of removal with only hand made tools like shovels and hammers. This is to strip the roofing material from the building. Third step recommends that asbestos should be wet before disrupting it. Fourth step of protection covers how the material handling. Fifth step says that workers removing the roofing materials should be properly knowledgeable in accordance with an EPA training program.

There are different state and even federal regulations that regulate the removal of asbestos roof tiles and other asbestos containing materials.
